Happy New Year!
And, hopefully, a new start. Since my job ran out in December I've pretty much just been relaxing and visiting my family in Stoke for Christmas. Now it's January, I should probably get on with stuff, not least dA which I tend to neglect for long periods and then find a bit overwhelming with hundreds of messages to sort out. I've decided to reset this to zero and, hopefully, become more active again.
Hasn't been a bad 2012 really. As well as having a short story published in paperback for the first time ever (Yappy the Happy Squirrel
as part of the Bizarro Press compilation 'Tall Tales With Short Cocks'), I got a Daily Deviation for dA Monopoly and released my first novel, 'Shadowed' (available on Amazon
or as a free chapter extract
) which has sold steadily, if not spectacularly. Still, it's all part of the learning process.
For 2013, I'm hoping to release a free Kindle book of a Fantasy Game project
which I started a while back, and am now getting through at an unusually fast pace . Apart from that, I'm trying to concentrate on giving myself a set routine to write stuff, comment on dA, sort my blog out, advertise etc. I'll probably also need another one of those 'job' things before I run out of money- even though they just get in the way of more important stuff like writing
Hope you're all well.
